Spent two days with Steve and his team doing a mountains skills course - everything about them from start to finish was very good. Knowledgeable, friendly and supportive every step of the way - would definitely recommend them and I will definitely be using them again.
Thanks for the great two days training! We very much enjoyed the course and yesterday put those skills to practise by planning, navigating and reaching Glyder Fawr. We loved it! We'll be back for the winter skills course!!

Fantastic two days on a mountain skills course with Stephen. He tailored the learning to suit all the individuals needs within the group. This was done in a knowledgeable and friendly way with the right level of challenge.
Attended a mountain skills course this week with Stephen. Great stuff. Learned plenty of good practical techniques on navigation , route planning , and staying safe in the mountains. All put over in a calm , non judgemental way. A very knowledgeable guy and good company. Would recommend this course to anybody looking to refine their skills and gain confidence in the mountains!
Fantastic guy, fantastic course, I would recommend to anybody. Had a super time out in the mountains with great people. Thank you Steve.
